Have you started talking about the M word?  M=Money which requires knowledge and awareness to achieve important financial goals as you start your new family together.  Judith Rosenthal, Senior Financial Advisor with Ameriprise Financial, provides professional financial planning services for every stage of life so you are better prepared to pursue your dreams with confidence.  Judi offers valuable information and recommendations that every couple should hear before they get
married.

Do you have a vision for your future together?  What is your money culture?  Should newlyweds completely merge their finances or should they keepseparate accounts?  How important is it to discuss risk tolerance with your spouse to be?  When should a couple start to look for professional assistance with regard to money matters?

It is easy to get caught up in the excitement of wedding planning and you might not want to see the big picture before you tie the knot.  Have you considered the long term positive impact if you spend less money on the wedding?  Inevitably, couples are going to argue from time to time on money issues.  What are some things they can do to resolve those disagreements?  Judi has some terrific suggestions that will help alleviate some stress and anxiety when blending finances.

Unique in the industry is Ameriprise Financial’s Dream Book guide.  It’s an amazing personal journal to record your priorities, goals and plans so you can have better perspective on where you are going.  This important podcast gives you something essential to think about that can ultimately make your dreams a reality.

Where: New York
Showroom Classic Party Rentals where âEvery Event is a Big
Eventâ?

Friend and colleague
Nancy Swiezy invited us to a special industry event and we want you
to be part of the excitement and get inspired with information from
pros that have a pulse in the party business. Robert Allen,
Executive Producer, takes us behind the scenes at the Classic Party
Rentals NYC launch party with top chefs, caterers, & floral dÃcor
and event designers. With more than 25 years of experience, Classic
Party Rentals is the nationâs leading full service event rental
company.

Good-bye cookie cutter
dÃcor. Michael Miner, VP Marketing Classic Party Rentals,
talks about his philosophy in the world of events and what brides
have available to make their occasion great. Then Robert spoke with
leading entertaining expert David Tutera. David tells us about his
Enchanted Garden table â its color, texture, personality.
David says a wedding has to tell a story with the elements of your
wedding. Listen and learn about eclectic looks and Davidâs
favorite color trend.

Tess Casey of Aisling
Studioâs, designed three tables at the event, and talks about
the fabrics, color palette and details that feature different themes,
unusual elements, and accent ideas. Do you want an element of
surprise? Are you trying to be a little green? PLUS Insider Scoop:
Tess specializes in camera-ready flowers and works closely with
Creative and Art Directors for film and television. She recently
worked on the wedding scenes in the Sex and the City movie. She
designed the wedding bouquet for Carrie. What flowers did she use?
Want to find out the designer of the gown SJP wore? What should a
couple know when starting their search for a floral designer? Tess
gives her expert advice.

Whatâs the new
white? Ed Libby, award winning event designer, presented two tables.
The Bling table has sparkle! He has designed for celebrity clients
including Naomi Campbell, Tyra Banks, Robert DeNiro, Usher, and
Diddy. Edâs best advice: Marry a couplesâ design
fantasy with professional expertise so itâs a fun process.

Food is an element of
dÃcor and something to talk about. Chefs created culinary
delights enjoyed by invited guests. Since founding Thomas Preti
Caterers, Inc. over 20 years ago, Chef Thomas Preti has orchestrated
thousands of events. Local, organic food is becoming part of the menu
today. Current wedding trends in food are discussed with Kelven Book
of Canard Inc. Recognizable foods with a twist are starting to be
prepared to make it more special, surprising and appetizing.
Signature cocktails are here to stay. Interactive food at weddings
and social events is a winner. Olivier Cheng created a tasting plate
of savory and sweet fois gras, a naked salmon station, and a liquid
nitrogen station â cool idea! Are people harder to impress
today? Does Olivier welcome the creative challenge? Are you
thinking of a cocktail reception only? Olivier tells us that food
can evolve at a party.

We end the podcast with
Roberta Karsch of Resource One Inc., a custom designed table linen
rental company. Learn about unusual objects that were used to bring
the element of the unexpected to the party.
